Computer giant, Microsoft has announced the launch of Microsoft 365 Education in Nigeria – a single, affordable technology solution built to simplify knowledge transfer from teachers to students in schools.The solution brings together Office 365, Windows 10, Intune for Education, Minecraft: Education Edition and Enterprise Mobility + Security, in a single cloud-based package.

The Education Programme Manager, Microsoft Nigeria, Ms. Jordan Belmonte, while speaking at the launch this week at the Microsoft ‘Windows in the Classroom’ event organized in partnership with Sidmach, an indigenous ICT firm said the solution provides easy and skillful modes of modern teaching.

“With mounting pressure on educational institutions to continually improve students’ achievement and prepare them with skills they will need when they enter the workforce, the aim of Microsoft 365 Education is to get schools up and running faster through simplified acquisition and deployment.

“This eliminates wasted time and delivers new capabilities to teachers and students to help them learn and work in new ways,” she said.

She added that “Microsoft 365 is able to connect all the teachers in the world. Some of the features embedded like One Note aids multiple language learning and has features suitable for special needs of children.

Additionally, the Microsoft Regional Leader for Education in Europe, Middle East and Africa, Mr. Mark East said schools want simple to purchase, simple to manage, secure and efficient systems and Microsoft 365 Education was designed to deliver on that need.
